Newton Fund (UK-TR Government Funding Programme in Science and Technology) in Turkey is delivering a series of ‘Newton For Climate’ webinars with the aim of showcasing the impacts and successes of Newton projects in Environmental Studies and Climate Change.
As you may all already know , the UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021. The COP26 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Within this framework, the webinar series will demonstrate the impact of the successful joint research in Environmental Studies funded both by the UK and Turkish governments under Newton – Katip Celebi Fund throughout October 2021.
